    Up for trade or sale is an early 90s mij aria pro sb elite ltd
    I've had a couple of these over the years and they have had "alembic" pickups and filter...this one is a bit unusual as it has dot vs "cat eye" inlays and the pickups are labeled "Aria Pro II" however between tone, internals and pickup construction I'm about 99.9% sure these are alembic made guts. Tone on this thing is a slappers delight much more usable than the traditional sb1000 tone- this is a very growly clear- think alembic-or jazz on steriods.... Great tone if you like a bright clear bass...weight is about 9lbs or so, plays wonderfully with low action. Pics

    As luck would have it I'm doing more traditional stuff at moment so I'd like to sell or trade it
    Cash price $700 shipped us 48 Im very firm on this price as these usually go for about a grand...but it seems tb has been a buyers market

    Trades:
    Fender road worn p or j
    Vintage ri p or j
    Fender usa deluxe j 4
    Nate mendal bass
    Will listen to other ideas

    I have a few other neat basses I'd toss in if you had a rickenbacker to trade

    What kind of bass is this? The title and the descript is confusing? A BnG II?

    This is what a BnG II would look like on Steroids!
